Speech Pathology

Our speech therapy services help both children and adults to develop effective communication skills.

That doesn’t necessarily mean ‘typical’ communication skills.

There are many different ways to get your message across and engage with others – and we encourage them to learn new ways of listening to you too.

communication is about connection

Communication means connection

Ultimately, communication is about connection.

Language helps you connect with yourself by understanding your own thoughts and feelings. It also helps you build relationships with others such as family members, friends or colleagues.

Those connections improve your quality of life. We love being part of that.

Communication is a
two-way street

Communication is relational. It’s about both the speaker and the listener.

That’s why we work with the whole family. As you learn new styles of communication, we can also help your family – or your workmates – learn how to understand and engage.

Therapy may start in the clinic but it continues throughout the week as you and your family practice together.

And wouldn’t it be great if more people met you halfway? If our society became more comfortable with different ways of communicating? If more people learned sign language or became comfortable with augmentative and alternative communication methods?

That would be a much fairer and friendlier world, wouldn’t it?
